This 4 cd is from 9/26&28/76 , half from upstateNY and the other from Baltimore I think. I've had it on in the car for the past couple days and can't figure out how/why its a DP? The SECOND Let it Grow is a smoker , but twice in the same cd set seems odd. Does someone know if there is some other significance to this set? I think evry grok has been more exciting/better set list, etc. Admittedly the quality is superb. And by no means no offense to Dick and the Picks concept. Couldn't have been a happier person when they made their way into "record" store way back when. Just curious.

Hey Jody, you rock man!

I never heard DP 20 -- if you want to make up for it, go back to the "record" store and trade it for DP 10 (this is my fav of the few I have heard).

Have an awesome weekend -- can't wait til April.

All I can say is that there are a lot of DP's I find less than satisfying. That '76 show is one of them.

But there also have been some gems: #'s 3, 7, 10, 12, and 14 come to mind.

Been discussed before; and of course, I am an early era sort, but my sense of many of the 70s DPs is that the mix is just not what it could be...something about the sound just doesn't convey that of the experience, but I don't find that to be true of <71 era DPs...might totally be bias...just my two cents.

J, the "knowledge" man here says you're not allowed to complain...our thoughts and expressions are being controlled -- oh no -- run for the roses...

It was about 5 pounds. Make sure she leaves room in her bag.

'76 being one of my fav Dead years means I'm kinda partial to DP20. Jazzier playing by the boys - everything had that laid-back kinda feel to it. I always saw 76 as the calm before the storm of '77.

I blow hot and cold on DP20. It lacks the intensity of DP33 from the same year. But I love 76 so much that I'm happy for any HDCD releases from that year. There's nothing remarkable in either the first or second sets of 9-25, but the entire show has a solid amiability that makes it worth listening to. The second set jam of 9-28 is low-key like so much of 76, but has many enjoyable moments.

Not complaining really, just seems they would pick something out of the ordinary if possible to attach theDP label to.

You folks must love those studio DP's. I still listening to mostly older hissy tapes. Anytime I attempt to relive my pass, CSCS next door calls johnny law. I dew own a few DP's 25, 36, Terrapin Limited, PBS Winterland, and a few jerry and bobby disc..

The whole kit was $610.....the only I have close to 610 is KFRC... if you can find some archived news reports from when Mt Diablo was on fire, WE WERE THE YOUTH watching the fire on the mountain. 5 minutes of fame.

I look forward to a stream ASAP.
